The Audi S5 is another one of those German sports coupes that comes straight from the factory with some fantastic looking bodywork. This time the tuning house MTM has worked their magic on the drop top machine in order to create this special S5 Cabrio Michelle Edition that upgrades every aspect of the four ring convertible sports coupe; including the engine management, suspension and brakes. The MTM S5 features a black and red paint scheme, complete with a Porsche Carrera like "Michelle Edition" stripe running down the side of the Cabrio.

The MTM S5 Cabrio Michelle Edition rides on a set of their signature color matched 9 spoke Bimoto rims sized 21 inches in diameter by 10.5 inches wide wrapped in sticky 295/25 Michelin rubber. The MTM tuned ride also features a handmade high performance free flowing exhaust system and a set of upgraded Brembo 8 piston brake calipers. Thanks to MTM’s the new M-Cantronic and V-Cantronic units, the 3.0 Liter TFSI V6 engine pumps out a total of 430 HP and 380 lb-ft of torque, up from the factory rating of 333 HP, while the S5’s top speed goes all the way up to 178 MPH.

The German tuners at Motoren Technik Mayer Tuning have just come out with a stellar example of the world’s favorite sport compact car, the Volkswagen GTI. While the standard Golf VI GTI comes from the factory with 210 HP 2.0 Liter TFSI four cylinder engine and the automaker planning on releasing a turbocharged all wheel drive version making an impressive 270 HP and will almost certainly carry a pretty premium. The new MTM VW GTI promises to deliver power on par with the Golf R and should save owners quite a few quid while doing it.

MTM gives the GTI 270 HP and makes it almost as good as the Golf R in the process

For the fraction of the difference between the two cars, owners can upgrade their front wheel drive hot hatch with MTM’s tuning program that raises output to match the Golf R at 270 HP but also raises torque to a total of 295 lb-ft of twist with a simple air filter and reflashed ECU that also raises the GTI’s top speed to 165 MPH. In order to handle the additional power MTM offers a variety of high performance clutches and a variety of Brembo brake setups to bring the high speed high jinks to a quick halt. Finishing off MTM’s latest show piece are a set of their signature Bimoto lightweight rims measuring 19 inches in diameter and finished in a similar black to compliment the decorative stripe that runs along the base of the doorsill. The German tuner is offering an all around upgrade for the Golf VI GTI that make it almost as good as the upcoming Golf R for a lot less money.

MTM Porsche Cayenne

The Porsche Cayenne is a very successful vehicle for the German sports car builder, and over in Europe the turbo diesel V6 powered version is even more of a hit. So when the aftermarket tuners at MTM decided to further improve their product selection for the Porsche SUV and it only made sense to develop a performance package for the alternatively fueled sports truck.

The upgraded power package for the diesel version of the Porsche Cayenne is based around a reprogrammed Engine Control Unit that optimizes air, fuel and boost to get the most out of the six piston pumper. By nature, diesel powered engines do not crate a lot of horse power, however whatever they lack in work force they make up for in torque. So this newly tuned Cayenne is now capable of producing a maximum output of 300 HP from the 3.0 Liter turbo diesel V6 and peak of 442 lb-ft of torque.

MTM is also offering an F-Cantronic system designed to electronically control the suspension, bringing the body up to 45 mm closer to the 21 inch signature Bimoto wheels.

Press release after the jump.

The German tuning house, MTM, has just revealed a new performance upgrade for theAudi S4 and A6 that are equipped with the automaker’s 3.0 Liter TFSI six cylinder engine. Thanks to a M-Cantronic system the S badged entry level sedan now makes 430 HP, that is almost 100 HP above the stock output, all without having to turn a wrench and get your hands dirty. The same computer retune is available for the TFSI equipped A6s, but in the larger sedan, the increase is only good for about 70 HP.

Besides the improved performance of the smart engine software, MTM is also offering their new signature sport tuned exhaust system for the vehicles wearing a four ringed emblem. The exhaust can be finished off with either a quad tip, oval tailpipe or a blacked out unit so that you won’t see anything at all. Completing the handling part of the performance upgrade, MTM also equips the Audi’s with a set of 19 to 21 inch Bimoto wheels with a big brake upgrade underneath as well as an MTM height adjustable coilover suspension.

Just because the world’s automakers are downsizing their engine opitions doesn’t mean that you have to settle for a lesser vehicle. Take the Audi S4 for example. The car started out as a wonderful bi-turbo V6, but then German automaker wanted to take the entry level sedan DTM racing, so they shoehorned a V8 in between the strut towers and sold to car to the public. The last generation RS4 was an even better car, with a 420 HP 4.2 Liter FSI engine and quattro all wheel drive system it was like an early R8 with the body on backwards. With tighter emissions and fuel consumption becoming more an more of an issue, the current generation S4 had been reduced back to a six cylinder with a blower sitting in the "v".

As an automotive consumer you do not have to settle for this, this is when you turn to the aftermarket, and the German tuning house, MTM is prepared to help you with a simple computer module that will take the 3.0 Liter TFSI engine from 328 HP all the way up to 424 HP without getting your hands dirty. The twisting force is raised from 324 lb-ft up to 379 lb-ft of torque and the upgraded S4 will sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.6 down from the standard car’s 5.2 second sprint. The modification will set you back 2491 Euro if you want to go to MTM directly, but we are sure for a few more they will figure out a way to raise the 155 MPH speed limiter.

We here at Top Speed love tuned machines, we love them even more when they are racing, but there is a special spot in out hearts for fast wagons. The owner of the BMW M5 must not have known what he was looking at when the Audi RS6 Avant built by tuners MTM rolled up and challenged him to a race. It appears that the BMW is equipped with a Super Sprint exhaust, good for another 40 HP over the 5.0 Liter V10’s 500 HP, but one thing is for certain, an exhaust is no match for a fully built 700+ HP machine.

The French enthusiasts at Grip have set up an interesting competition between an MTM modified Audi RS6 Avant and a Ski-Doo snowmobile. The German tuners MTM have boosted the Audi’s 5.0 Liter TFSI 10 cylinder engine from the standard 580 HP to an astonishing 730 HP. The driver is banking on the Quattro all wheel drive system of the MTM RS6 R to get all that power to the snow covered surface. Watch and see how the tuned twin turbo V10 stacks up against the 1200 cc Rotax motor in this downhill battle. The action starts at around 1:00.

The exterior received a wild green paint scheme while a supercharger was fitted to the 4.2 liter FSI V8 boosting output from the stock 420 HP up to 560 HP.

The KTM X-Bow is the kind of car we love. It’s an engine, a seat, four wheels and a few bolts to keep the whole thing together. Now tuner MTM is giving us something to make our smiles even wider, more power. Its boosting the power from the Audi-sourced 2.0 four cylinder engine from 237 hp to 380 hp. MTM didn’t release 0 to 60 times, but with the sixty percent power improvement, we bet there will be some serious time shaved off the standard X-Bow’s 3.7 second time.

This boosted X-Bow is well above the supercharged Ariel Atom’s 300 hp, so now it may be the king of the hill of spartan sports cars. But this may not last long, a 500 hp Atom rumored to be in development.
